This CloseHer Excellency the Governor, and the Premier, Hon. Alden McLaughlin met Rotary International President K.R. Ravindran, who called on them at the Government Administration Building today (Friday, 29 January 2016). This is the first visit by a Rotary International (RI) President to the Cayman Islands, according to local Rotarians.
Mr. Ravindran is principally here to attend the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman. He was accompanied on his GAB visit by Rotary District 7020 Governor Felix Stubbs, Mrs. Carla Stubbs, Past District Governor Jeremy Hurst, Aide to the RI President and RI Director Barry Rassin and Rotary District Assistant Governor (Cayman Islands) Eric Bush.
Mr. Ravindran commented that he was delighted not only by the weather of the Cayman Islands – similar to his native Sri Lanka – but even more so by the warmth of the people he had met and interacted with during his short visit.
Currently, the world is close to eradicating polio, thanks to Rotary’s help. There are now only some 70 instances of polio being registered for the whole year in Afghanistan and , with the rest of the world declared free of this scourge that cripples especially children, Mr. Ravindran outlined to his hosts (?).
Both the Governor and the Premier lauded the invaluable role that service organisations such as the Rotary and the Lions have played in the development of the Cayman Islands in the past 50 years.

The Premier also revealed that as a Rotary exchange student in the early 1980s, he had spent time in Dothan, Alabama, and began his years in service clubs in the Cayman Islands with Rotary before moving to the Lions.
